Applying to the AIFTT
The Amsterdam International Feldenkrais Teacher Training (AIFTT) is a professional training program designed to prepare participants to become Feldenkrais practitioners.
We desire a well-balanced trainee body—one that represents the full range of human experience. The only prerequisites are that the applicant has prior Feldenkrais experience (individual lessons, group classes, or preferably both) and that he or she participates in an introductory workshop.
Applicants are asked to submit a completed application which includes:
• Work history
• Educational background (academic & professional)
• Prior experience with Feldenkrais lessons
• Description of hobbies and interests
• Health status
• Two letters of recommendation—including one from a Feldenkrais practitioner
Besides completing the application process you need to attend one of the upcoming introductory workshops in Amsterdam. The remaining workshops are occuring on Sunday, 26 May, and Saturday, 30 June. If you cannot attend one these workshop. then we will make arrangements for an in-person or online interview.
After submitting an application to the AIFTT, you can expect to receive a response within two to three weeks. If accepted into the program, you will receive orientation information along with a Trainee Enrollment Agreement. The agreement is the contract that specifies your rights and responsibilities as a participant in the program. You will be asked to sign the contract and return it, within thirty days of notification, along with your Tuition Down Payment to reserve your place in the training.
To apply, please complete and submit the application form—along with your two letters of recommendation and the non-refundable €85,00 Application Fee.
